i got a bit of extra money, so thinking about getting an 8 wheeler (thinking about it since years) but i am used to long (18"+) Wheelbases....
so i am confused what to look for, am i right that the gen I came with 16,5", the gen II with a 15 something (?)" and the genII with a 17" wheelbase?

what about the others, like te concave ones and the cyclops (which seems to be convertible)? maybe some nice soul can give me short hint which "thing" i am looking for if i prefer longer wb....?! advice would be really apreciated.

The cyclops was the same deck as the concave 8 Wheeler just drilled for two trucks and had small routed channels in it.

And a slight stinger to the tail, would still make a great 8-wheeler.
